Tried this place as an alternative to the chain places near the college. Very good solid Italian staples and wine selection

My husband and I were very hungry and googled for a pizza place. Saw the reviews on this and decided to stop by. The place was packed, but we got a seat close to the window. It took a while for our waitress to get to our table. However, she was very attentive and pleasant. We ordered the soprano pizza.... More

My family and I stopped in while traveling on 81, we love Italian food and the reviews seemed to be all great. First off, I very rarely tip over 20%, but our service from Jordan may have been the best I have seen! She was bubbly and sweet and very attentive. Always said yes ma'am, yes sir, and was very...

This place is consistently great. My favorite item is the stuffed shells. They are just as good as my grandmother's were, and that is saying something. The service is always great, the food consistently meets or exceeds expectations, and the prices are more than reasonable given the reliable quality of the experience. If you are in Harrisonburg and craving Italian,... More

The Stromboli is excellent!! It was loaded with meat, vegetables, cheese and served with delicious marinara sauce. I could eat here everyday!

We stopped here on our long trip back from Tennessee. Vito's is located directly across the street from the James Madison University football field. I had chicken parm, which was served quickly. It was delicious. My daughter had bolognese with whole wheat ziti. It too was delicious. The salads were fresh. The only, minor complaint would be the rolls. Not... More

Every time I have ordered from here there is always something wrong and I have to turn around and go back. The communication between wait staff and kitchen staff seems to be lacking.

Presentation was delightful, service excellent, quality wonderful. Strip mall surprise, Sicilian native at the helm. Wine list very nice. NOT 5-star NYC, but for a great family meal in Hogansville, VA, head to Vito's! (We're nearby on vacation.)
